April is National Poetry Month, and Alfred A. Knopf and Tumblr are joining forces to celebrate in style. Follow this Tumblr for a stream of verse from new voices in the Tumblr community as well as established writers. Submit your own poems for a chance to be featured, or join us at Housing Works Bookstore Cafe on April 23rd to meet up and hear readings by U.S. Poet Laureate Philip Levine and other amazing poets. And don’t forget to check out the brand-new Poetry Spotlight for new poetry blogs to follow!
If you didn’t think Tumblr was a place for poetry, please give me 30 days to change your mind…
